Curriculum Review – Implementation of the Victorian Curriculum 2017

Mordialloc College has commenced a comprehensive review of the curriculum, with Year 7 to 10 courses currently being mapped against the recently released Victorian Curriculum Foundation – 10 (F–10).

The Victorian Curriculum F–10 sets out what every student should learn during their first eleven years of schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship.

There are three new curriculum areas to be introduced – intercultural and ethical capabilities as well as digital technologies. In addition to this, there has been new content introduced into Learning Areas.

This semester teachers have been meeting in subject-based learning teams to review current curriculum and this is almost complete. Throughout the remainder of the year, the focus will be on teachers making changes to current courses and, where needed, writing new courses designed to meet the changing needs of 21st century learners.

Information about the Victorian Curriculum can be found on the Victorian Curriculum website. http:// victoriancurriculum.vcaa.vic.edu.au/
